Fork & Barrel’s brunch soothes and satisfies Wednesday, Feb 19 2020 

There is something indulgent about brunch that we don’t often experience at even a lavish dinner. It’s not necessarily a matter of gluttony: I’d rather choose from a selection of chef-created morning and midday dishes rather than dive into a gigantic buffet spread under plastic hoods known as sneeze guards. Ick. No, the joy of … Continue reading Fork & Barrel’s brunch soothes and satisfies

Around the world on a plate at Diamond Street Grub Wednesday, Feb 12 2020 

I’m generally a bit skittish about restaurants that offer a mix of different world cuisines that extend well beyond the chef’s personal DNA. How can one chef master so many culinary arts? So I wasn’t sure what to expect when Diamond Street Grub & Hops came to town last summer: Its international menu draws randomly … Continue reading Around the world on a plate at Diamond Street Grub

The tall gray stone sanctuary of Calvary Lutheran Church was approaching its 90th anniversary when its congregation, aging and declining in numbers, regretfully decided to pack it in. “Emptying the building.

What’s a bhaji pav? Honest Indian’s new delights Wednesday, Jan 15 2020 

Way back in 1975, when hardly anyone around here knew what street food was, Vijay Agrawal took his first steps toward culinary success when he added bhaji pav – a popular Mumbai veggie curry dish served with white rolls – to the selection of his outdoor chaat (snack) cart in downtown Ahmedabad, India’s fifth-largest city. … Continue reading What’s a bhaji pav?

Jasmine Bistro impresses with Chinese regional flavors Wednesday, Dec 11 2019 

I still vividly remember the excitement of my first tastes of Sichuan cuisine. We had to travel to New York City, San Francisco or Chicago to get such goodies back in the late ‘70s, but Sichuan, aka Szechwan, fare did get to Louisville finally, and for a decade or two, these spicy regional cuisines were … Continue reading Jasmine Bistro impresses with Chinese regional flavors

SOU might mean “South.” It could represent “soul.” Yet the proper way to pronounce the name of this new Plainview-area eatery is not “sow” or “soo” but “So-you.” Intentional ambiguity seems to lie at the heart of this upscale dining room in a thoroughly renovated former Skyline Chili parlor, and that’s all right. SOU is … Continue reading However you pronounce SOU, we sure like it.
